MXV

BraunAbility’s MXV combines advanced technology with the space-saving Ford Explorer. The result: An accessible SUV with a power door, kneel and ramp system, plus redesigned, removable front seats to enable the wheelchair user to drive, ride as a passenger or ride in the center. The sliding front shifter provides extra space up front. Outdoors adventurers can add the optional tow package. The MXV has a 28.5" door opening width, 55" door opening height, an interior height of 59" and a 28"-wide ramp.

Turny Evo Swivel Seat

Turny Evo Swivel Seat

Autoadapt’s swivel system enables an automotive seat to rotate toward the door opening for easier transfers whether the user is standing or in a wheelchair; the seat lift version enables the seat to exit the vehicle and lower to a suitable transfer height. The new Turny Evo swivel seat is crash tested to traditional automotive standards and beyond, namely a 30-G crash with a 102-kg crash-test dummy. Autoadapt points out that using original automotive seating provides for better seatbelt geometry and effectiveness for the rider.

    Here’s a vehicle that complies with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility requirements as soon as it rolls off the assembly line. An extra-wide passenger door opening, an integrated in-floor ramp and a floor-to-ceiling height nearly 5' tall make the MV-1 ready for wheelchair users from day one. Mobility Ventures’ 2016 MV-1 models are now available.

    An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2015:

    As an ATP that is also a CDRS (Certified Driver Rehabilitation Specialist), [I] deal a lot with wheelchair transportation and occupied wheelchair transit. B&D Independence has rolled out a new electric wheelchair docking system that I think many of the seating folks will be interested in. I like it because it removes the problems encountered with ground clearance for docking brackets, and it is more stable since it is mounted with a higher center of gravity. It does not increase width dimension.

    QLK-150

    Designed to provide maximum independence, the QLK-150 docking system is ideal for wheelchair users who drive their own vehicles or want to quickly secure their own chairs via a single-point system. The QLK-150 has been successfully crash tested forward, rearward and sideways to higher WC19 standards. The adhesive dash control features a compact design with larger touch area and embedded LED indicators to show system status. Optional base mounts achieve clearance as low as 1.5” (38mm) and as high as 4” (100mm). A flush surface eliminates snags and gives 3/16" of additional bolt clearance.

    DARIOS Hand Controls

    As seen at the San Jose Abilities Expo: Combining function with beautiful form, DARIOS driving controls feature a digital ring installed on the steering wheel — without interfering with steering wheel airbag deployment. A wired connection between the steering wheel and the dashboard transmits the position of the accelerator ring to the gas pedal. KEMPF says DARIOS was tested in Daimler AG labs in Germany and found to be immune to electromagnetic noise, thus preventing unintentional accelerations.
